  6. The Standardized Desktop Rating System is a system to have reliable standards for rating desktops in desktop threads without adding too much bias from the rater of personal preferences to overpower the score given to a user's desktop while allowing the rater to choose what standards of rating that they want to use so that the rated user can understand what standard that the rater is using in comparison to their preferred standard to better communicate specific concepts compressed in the shortest amount of time possible using the SDRS codes.
  8. The SDRS focuses on the three most commonly discussed attributes that influences the overall appearance of the desktop screen: Creativity, Functionality, and Aesthetics. All three key attributes are further specified in secondary attributes as Positive(good), Negative(bad), and Zero(or neutral). For example, if a user wants to be rated based on how good their creativity, aesthetics, but not on the functionality of the desktop that they use, they would specify this with asking for a SDRS C- F= A+ rating. However, if a rater refuses to rate using that standard but instead uses SDRS A+, then only the A+ rating is considered by the user.
  10. Replace "X" with Creativity and/or Functionality and/or Aesthetics: "X" Positive is a standard that gets more points for having a "X" desktop while "X" Negative is a standard that gets more points for having an un"X" desktop, and "X" Zero is a standard that gets less points for having more or less "X" desktop while the highest possible score is a zero for being neutral in "X".
  12. The Positive and Negative points is relative to which one you had selected as your standard. For example, if you selected A-, a -5/5 score for A- means that you have an terrible unaesthetic desktop (because it's aesthetically pleasing) but in A+ standard, it gets a 5/5. There's 11 units for the Positive and Negative points; 5, 4, 3, 2, 1, 0, -1, -2, -3, -4, -5.
  14. When a user asks for a SDRS C+ F- rating and a rater gives the user a rating, it could look like the following: SDRS C+ (5) F- (3)
  16. The Zero points is relative to how far from the mediocre you are. It's neither good or bad, but the very purpose of the Zero points is mainly to rate comical desktops as the more or less that they stray away from neutrality, the less funny it gets. It can also be used to measure how indistinguishable a user desktop is from the norm of their goal being as anonymous and typical that they can be to not stand out too much in any positive or negative manner. There's 6 units for the Zero points; 0, -1, -2, -3, -4, -5, whatever positive or negative score one usually gets is all treated as negative now, but without any higher score than 0.
  18. Any more attributes can't be added for it gets too personal and constraining to be accepted as an reliable opinion to be take into consideration, but you can have multiple rating standards and you can choose to use any combination of the 3 primary key attributes and also use secondary Zero attributes along with any Positive or Negative attribute. For example, when someone asks for a SDRS C+ F-= A+ rating, a rater might give a SDRS C+ (3) F- (4) = (-4)  A+ (5) score to the specified rating standard the user wanted.
  20. Whether or not the Zero (Neutral) points is necessary is all up to you as you can choose to not use it at all, so it shall remain as a secondary attribute for that option to be there for whatever purposes that you see fit for it within the standards set in the SDRS.
